Use two 5 shelf IKEA bookcases turned on their sides, add baskets below for storage and a cushion on top of each bookcase bench - instant reading nook! Playroom Storage, Ideas, Playrooms Storage, Organic, Kids Room, Ikea Bookcas, Plays Room, Toys Storage, Toys Room

Charlie’s room is all about toys and access. I bought that another amazing IKEA Expedit bookshelf (a modern classic, if you ask me) and some nice looking baskets and that is how he manages to play in there and tidy his room almost all by himself at the end of each day.
Great idea for records!! Crate Wall Storage for books: JoAnn's unfinished wooden crates (<$8); Cut crate in half, paint, attach hanging brackets, place something (file folder/poster board/plastic placemat) cut to fit on the bottom to cover the slats. You can use painters tape to create the line to saw -- it'll help in case of any splintering.
I would put these at the bottom of our stairs, on for each child, to put toys and what nots that belong upstairs. They empty out every time they walk up or more realistically when we go up to bed at the days end. Main living area stays clean and each child is responsible for their own stuff.
